South American leafhoppers of the tribe Hecalini (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The classification and taxonomic composition of the grassland leafhopper tribe Hecalini in South America are reviewed and the following new endemic taxa are described and illustrated: Otamendiella linnavuorii, gen. & sp. nov.; Spangbergiella monzonensis, sp. nov.; S. oxapampaensis, sp. nov. A key to genera and species, checklist and synonymy of South American Hecalini are also provided. The known hecaline fauna of South America now comprises seven described species belonging to three genera.
